BP&O Collections — Business Cards for Architects

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated collection of business cards designed as part of a broader graphic identity programme for architects, architectural studios, events and specialist retailers, reviewed and published on BP&O. Between them, these typically explore architectural enduring considerations and express these graphically and/or materially.

This post moves between a simple use of type and arrangement to those employing dyed boards and print finishes to call to mind architectural materials, processes and principles. Light and shade, the framing of space and a play with light and shade are recurring motifs, yet are weaved together, alongside other assets, to create a distinctive identity. Occasionally this breakaway with an unusual and unexpected use of colour, serving to differentiate and emote. Check out plenty more at BP&O – Collections or subscribe to the series here.

Support BP&O

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
